Added this syntax highlighting for better reading of the code snippets.

I'd rather keep compatible with the plain Markdown parser, which has no support for fenced code blocks.

With class autoloading in place, putting the 'Michelf' folder in your
include path should be enough for this to work:
- use \Michelf\Markdown;
- $my_html = Markdown::defaultTransform($my_text);
+use \Michelf\Markdown;
+$my_html = Markdown::defaultTransform($my_text);
Markdown Extra syntax is also available the same way:
- use \Michelf\MarkdownExtra;
- $my_html = MarkdownExtra::defaultTransform($my_text);
+use \Michelf\MarkdownExtra;
+$my_html = MarkdownExtra::defaultTransform($my_text);
If you wish to use PHP Markdown with another text filter function
built to parse HTML, you should filter the text *after* the `transform`
function call. This is an example with [PHP SmartyPants][psp]:
- use \Michelf\Markdown, \Michelf\SmartyPants;
- $my_html = Markdown::defaultTransform($my_text);
- $my_html = SmartyPants::defaultTransform($my_html);
+use \Michelf\Markdown, \Michelf\SmartyPants;
+$my_html = Markdown::defaultTransform($my_text);
+$my_html = SmartyPants::defaultTransform($my_html);
All these examples are using the static `defaultTransform` static function
found inside the parser class. If you want to customize the parser
configuration, you can also instantiate it directly and change some
configuration variables:
- use \Michelf\MarkdownExtra;
- $parser = new MarkdownExtra;
- $parser->fn_id_prefix = "post22-";
- $my_html = $parser->transform($my_text);
+use \Michelf\MarkdownExtra;
+$parser = new MarkdownExtra;
+$parser->fn_id_prefix = "post22-";
+$my_html = $parser->transform($my_text);

If you cannot use class autoloading, you can still use `include` or `require`
to access the parser. To load the `\Michelf\Markdown` parser, do it this way:
- require_once 'Michelf/';
+require_once 'Michelf/';
Or, if you need the `\Michelf\MarkdownExtra` parser:
- require_once 'Michelf/';
+require_once 'Michelf/';
While the plain `.php` files depend on autoloading to work correctly, using the
`.inc.php` files instead will eagerly load the dependencies that would be
